For those living paycheck to paycheck and struggling without a support system to help, a single setback can spiral into a disaster, whether that’s a job loss, illness, eviction, or substance use that’s spiraled into abuse. If children are involved, looking for help can feel risky. Will the kids land in foster care? Will the state deem the parent an unfit caregiver?
If you’ve made it far enough to find us, there is hope. Better Together pledges to build a support network around you and your family—without judgment and without taking away parents’ rights to make decisions regarding their children. The organization’s innovative Better Families and Better Jobs programs arm parents with the tools they need to get their lives back on track while offering voluntary child placement for those who want it.
Together, we can work toward a solution that keeps your family together. Follow the links below to get help for your family or to refer another family to Better Together. Or call our 24/7 hotline: (239) 470-2733
